A simple webapp for presenting data as offered by SaltStack's Redis Returner
A static demo is available here.
Just install it using pip install saltobserver. As always, it is recommended to do so in a virtualenv. After that, the command run_saltobserver will be available within this virtualenv. If you want to use non-default settings (at least look at the defaults) prefix the command with export SALTOBSERVER_SETTINGS=/path/to/config. Other than that, you may pass gunicorn options to the run_saltobserver command, they will be passed on so that you can configure gunicorn for use with a proxy server.
A typical deployment could use this command with supervisord:
$ export SALTOBSERVER_SETTINGS=/home/saltobserver/config.cfg run_saltobserver -u saltobserver --bind unix:/var/run/saltobserver/socket
Install a recent docker version (at least 1.2) and run
git clone https://github.com/analogbyte/saltobserver.git cd saltobserver docker build -t saltobserver . docker run -d --restart=always --name=saltobserver -p 8000:8000 -e REDIS_HOST=redis.example.org saltobserver
This exposes saltobserver to port 8000 and it tries to connect to redis.example.org as redis host. Change the env var or use docker links as suits your needs. Instead of building it yourself, feel free to use automated build from Docker Hub: docker pull analogbyte/saltobserver
If your minions return their data to some Redis instance, it is as simple as cloning this repo running scripts/run_saltobserver (and putting that behind a reverse proxy, if needed). This uses Gunicorn, which is pretty flexible and can be configured for pretty much any setup.
Note that your Redis instance has to have a version greater than v2.8.0 for the live updates to work.
Also look at the configuration in saltobserver/config.py.
